TRUSSVILLE — The Milo’s Burger, located in Trussville, is hosting a Hometown Heroes Eating Contest on Friday, September 16, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the eating contest will start at 11:30 a.m.
There are currently four contestants from the local area competing in the contest:
- Matt Richardson (Fire/EMT);
- Garrett Allen (Fire/EMT);
- Christian Gonzales (Fire/EMT);

Each contestant will get the largest meal Milo’s has to offer. They will compete against one another and the clock to finish the entire meal as fast as possible. The first person to finish the full plate gets a Milo’s gift card, swag and is automatically entered in a drawing for a chance to win tickets to the SEC championship game in Atlanta. To make the stakes even higher – the winner will also receive $250 to be donated to a charity of their choice.
